Intro: A social trip for experienced rock climbers up to Cloudy Peak. This is a “meet” rather than a “trip”, so we will share the approach to the bivvy sites, share beta and thoughts about weather & conditions etc, but we will be climbing independently on different routes. Sign up with a climbing partner or two, pick your lines and come along for a great social weekend!

Organiser:  Lateef Ahmad

Date: 28-29 January 2023

Itinerary: This trip is starting to become a bit of a tradition and is well worth the journey. The track last year was in remarkably good condition and access up the valley was very good.
The plan would be to leave Christchurch Friday night or early Saturday morning and walk in to set up a base at the rock bivvies before cracking in to two days of climbing! Check out the Climb NZ page for route beta and ideas. If you have a 4×4 and can give people a lift please let us know.

Previous experience required: Confident trad climbing

Gear required: Bivvy/camping gear, climbing rack

Plan B: Postpone to a different weekend. 

Questions: If you have any questions about the trip, feel free to contact me on [email protected].
